Goan Identity Workshop - The Youth Perspective: A workshop delivered by Christine Pinto and Ranvir Jangi of Facilitation At Work!
(Wednesday July 23, 2008)

"Facilitation at Work!" will deliver 2 workshops on one day at the 2008 International Goan Convention to focus on any of these topics:

  1. Goa – what does it mean to you? What does it mean to be a Goan? - A Canadian Goan/Indian Goan/East African Goan/Karachi (Pakistani) Goan?
  2. Does racism, discrimination and bias in Canadian society affect Goans?  Is caste distinction relevant to Goans? 
  3. What kinds of intergenerational challenges do you experience within the Goan community when you exercise social, academic and career choices?
  4. How can you help to further an understanding and appreciation of Goan heritage to other groups in Canada and globally?
  5. As a part of the successful Goan diaspora, how can you be involved in Goa’s future economic growth and cultural development?
